Airboats

I have Alaska on the mind so I keep seeing things that have to do with Alaska. For example, tonight on TV I was choosing between Food Network, DIY, and HGTV. But then on the National Geographic channel they had a show called Alaska State Troopers. They film random arrests all through the state of Alaska. On tonight's episode they were in Fairbanks during the moose hunt. The state trooper patrolling the area had something called an airboat, exhibit a:


Get this, the airboat works on both water and land, making it the perfect vehicle for swampy areas. The bottom is lined with a slick plastic surface and as long as it has recognizes moisture, it will move using the propeller on the back. Sounds pretty neat.
